arrowEarly Private Investigator Trends in 2012

So far 2012 has thrown up a mixed bag of private, commercial and legal investigation work in the private investigator industry. However, there is a noticeable increase and large demand thus far for tracing missing persons investigations and tracing investigations.

Insight’s recent work has included some really interesting and quite unique tracing investigations such as;

  • A film producer looking to seek an author’s family to obtain copyright to make the book into a film
  • Record company seeking a musician who disappeared in the 1970’s wanting to pay him royalties
  • A lead singer of a 1980’s group looking to track down old band mates to reform
  • An adopted lottery winner doing a TV documentary looking to trace their natural parents

As well as these pretty unique tracing investigations, Insight has also dealt with various adopted child stories with lots of people looking for their birth parents.

These types of investigations as with any private investigator service require a highly sensitive and discreet approach, especially when dealing with adopted child cases as the end result can vary from case to case. Of course, we would always hope that the perfect scenario of finding the parents, them turning out to be really inviting to their child creates a fairytale ending, although this isn’t always the case.

It is for this reason that tracing investigations should be treated and implemented with the utmost sensitivity. Worst case scenarios can often mean that upon investigation that the parents have passed away, moved thousands of miles away and be difficult to track down or if they are tracked down may not want to entertain the thought of being reunited with their birth child.

Insight have many years of experience in dealing with sensitive operations such a tracing missing persons or tracing investigations. If you are looking to trace somebody for whatever reason, please do not hesitate to contact one of our private investigators today or visit
